Space tourism

Space tourism is human space travel for recreational purposes. There are several different types of space tourism, including orbital, suborbital and planetary space tourism.

During the period from 2001 to 2009, seven space tourists made eight space flights to the International Space Station. The publicized price was in the range of US$20–25 million per trip.

By 2007, space tourism was thought to be one of the earliest markets that would emerge for commercial spaceflight.

On June 7, 2019, a space agency announced that starting in 2020, the organization aims to start allowing private astronauts to go on the International Space Station, which is planned to be priced at 35,000 USD per day for one astronaut, and an estimated 50 million USD for the ride there and back.

Work continues towards developing space tourism. Anothe space company announced in 2018 that they are planning on sending space tourists, on a free-return trajectory around the Moon.

This is one hard industry that has already claiming victims.


One docks with the orbiting observatory, ironically space is at a premium and a way of getting habitation modules in space is required, multi-layer, expandable space module technology is being trialed. One idea was taxi an asteroid to a location and hollow it out and fit as a permanent station to the various locations.

Perhaps asteroid taxi to a low gravity workstation.


There are many technologies at scale that are essential to guarantee the safety of everyone.
